EDITORS’ NOTES

Inside many office workers is the dream to be let go to do as Adrian Krygowski has done and Roam. The upstate New Yorker watched his part of the state hemorrhage jobs, including his own. So he relocated to East Nashville, Tenn., where he played the songs he’d written at an empty baseball diamond in Buffalo with local musicians. Most to his advantage, Paul Niehaus (Calexico, Justin Townes Earle) added pedal steel to the title track for the perfect accompaniment. Jared Manzo provided bass, and Krygowski played acoustic guitar to these folk songs, which traveled with him to “Ohio,” “Wisconsin #2," and “Chicago,” among the places named. With a voice that’s as rough and real (and as an acquired taste) as any folk singer on the unorthodox side of Bob Dylan, Krygowski re-creates his own sense of the small band that appeared on the great bard’s John Wesley Harding album. Take the moments when the drums appear on the latter verses of “Chicago,” along with Niehaus’ pedal steel weeping in the background.
